What do you Kanye West, Beth Moore, and John MacArthur have in common? They are all believers, and their recent actions have sparked a LOT of controversy in the Western Christian world over the last few weeks, and put a bright spotlight on a major issue facing the Church today...the ability to disagree with grace.

You may not believe this, but I don't agree with every Christian about every topic to come across the Church table. An even bigger shock is that every Christian doesn't agree with me about every topic to come across the Church table. I mean they should...because I'm usually right...but that's beside the point (totally joking!).
In case you've been living under a rock or out of the country for the last month, let me just tell you...it's been a busy couple of weeks for the American Church.
It's been an interesting couple of weeks in Western Christianity as we saw the freak out over John MacArthur telling Beth Moore to go home and then a week later Kanye West dropping his gospel album "Jesus is King". In the middle of the commotion an interesting thing was revealed about the state of the American Church...we don't get along. In fact, we're pretty divided along some unfortunate lines.

The church is a two-sided coin. On one side you have church leaders, and on the other side you have church members. Both sides think they ARE the coin, when in reality they are but one side of the SAME coin. As a result, unity is missing from many of our local churches. Sure, pastors have been guilty of beating the sheep, but the sheep have been guilty of biting the shepherd as well. In this episode, the Angry Christian crew discusses the abuse of church leaders at the hands of the sheep. [Hebrews 13:17 and Ephesians 4] Be sure to check out the accompanying blog post [https://eagerfortruth.com/2019/10/21/dont-bite-the-shepherd/].
